  • 4 grouper fillets or steaks, each 5 ounces and about 1 inch thick

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt 

  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 

  • 1 yellow onion, finely chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 3 tomatoes, peeled and seeded, then diced

  • 5 large pimiento-stuffed green olives 

  • 1 tablespoon capers, sliced and rinsed

  • 1 jalape�o chile, seeded and cut into 1-inch julienned slices

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice 



  • Sprinkle the grouper steaks on both sides with 1/4 teaspoon of the salt and 1/8 teaspoon of the pepper.

  • In a large, nonstick frying pan, heat 1 1/2 teaspoons of the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the fish to the pan and sear on both sides until lightly browned, about 2 minutes a side. Transfer to a plate and keep warm.

  • Reduce the heat to medium and add the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the pan. Add the onion and saut� until soft and lightly golden, about 6 minutes. Add the garlic, and saut� until softened, about 1 minute. Add the tomatoes, olives, capers, and jalape�o, and simmer for 10 minutes to allow the flavors to blend. Stir in the remaining 1/4 teaspoon of salt and 1/8 teaspoon of pepper.

  • Return the fish to the pan, cover, and simmer until the fish is opaque throughout when tested with the tip of a knife, about 6-8 minutes.

  • Transfer the grouper steaks to warmed individual plates. Stir the lime juice into the vegetables and pan juices, and spoon some sauce over each steak. Serve immediately.
